Feasibility of residential and commercial scale solar applications


Feasibility of different solar applications

Cost and feasibility analysis of different solar applications are included in the dynamic toolkit for sensitivity analysis with varying economic parameters. The purpose is to enable comparison of costs for:

  • Residential scale PV, solar heating and heat pump preheat

  • Commercial scale PV and solar heating

The main outputs are the pay-back times for different investment. The pay-back times for residential scale applications are presented as a function of the replaced/alternative energy purchase price. Commercial scale solar heat installations are presented as a function of the replaced heat cost and with different interest rates and installation sizes.

​Fresh thinking

Our customers tell us that collaborating with VTT adds value in a number of ways. It brings fresh thinking to the table, offers proven technologies that can be tailored to their specific needs, and accelerates the development and implementation process.

How we work

Working with VTT is different. Instead of developing everything internally or working with companies pushing proprietary solutions, we function as an extended part of your team. With VTT, you are tapping into platform chemical sector research and development that is both deep and broad.

​​Let’s talk
